Methodist Hospital | Metropolitan is proud to introduce Brin Cole, MHSA, as Vice President of Operations and Business Development.

After working in Austin, Texas, for the past few years, Cole is returning to San Antonio. With a Master of Science in Health Care Administration and a Bachelor of Arts in History and Business Administration from Trinity University, Cole joins Methodist Healthcare with over six years of experience in operations and strategy for healthcare organizations.
